wow looks interesting

I regularly use those free streaming radio stations in PocketTunes on my TX.

Now streaming YouTube? I am definately going to try this new Kinoma tonight after work. Looks fun.

I'd pay $20-25 if it streamed youtube well enough.

looks promising - at least in theory

Sooo.. I'm underwhelmed by the controls and abilities of the "bundled" Kinoma players on my last few Treos. But the hype on this full version is very tempting and I'd like to test it.

Where is the link to their demo?

there is no demo

you have to buy it, to try it.

streaming depends, for the most part, on your connection.

on my treo 680 and t-mos gprs, not so good at the streaming youtube. a lot of choppiness.

kinoma, by the way, thinks it is the only media player out there. it scans your whole sd card and list all the media. making it quite cluttered when you look at your mp3s.

previous to the last 2-3 updates, you could "hide" your mp3s in a different folder.

kinoma sucks as an mp3 player. first, you cant switch apps without stoping the play back.second, it plays them choppy.

the same mp3 on ptunes produces no choppiness.

We've made this a preference for customers who prefer to manually control this.

In General Preferences, choose Manually for the Synchronize library preference.

> second, it plays them choppy.

MP3 playback is pretty easy compared to video+audio playback, so I wouldn't expect you to have problems. Any information you can provide to our support team is appreciated.

Purchased Demos

>>>you have to buy it, to try it.

That's a shame. Hard to tell if something plays well with your other apps or even if you like the GUI without having a demo to test. From the feedback of people "in the know" here, it sounds like an "iffy" application.

Kinoma Player 4 EX should work great with your other apps. I use at least a couple apps that do somewhat-nefarious things with Palm OS under the hood, and I use and demo Kinoma Player on the same device every day.

The manual describes how the GUI works and has quite a few screenshots, so that might be helpful. You can find it in PDF and HTML formats at:

Of course, you're always welcome to talk to customers on our forums.
